growing up with the weakerthans

last night two fifths of nervoustime, gsp and myself went to see the weakerthans play their last four albums at the burton cummings theatre in winnipeg. scott oake wasn't there but sally was and that was good. the albums were played backwards and commentary and tears reminded me of things i've learned and loved about the last 13 years, sidewalks, north kildonan, frozen lakes. if nothing else the 49 songs essentially provide 49 ways to love winnipeg. and i think of my favorite winnipeg citizens, both past and present and an interesting part was in 'wellington's wednesday' they took it a little further with the new order lyric "oh it's the last time". but it wasn't. the weakerthans are going on even though not ever thing else has gone on in the last 13 years. what i can say about that is the three hours of emotion reminded me that you can be as wide eyed as the rest at 30 as you can at 20 or 25 or 33. and somewhere love and justice does shine cause it was shining through the whole place last night. and i can't escape nostalgia and that isn't a bad thing. who we are and where we've lived and what we've lived for and the songs we've sang along the way are all the small parts of the days we've spent together and will continue to spend with others we might not even have met yet. and i did hang diplomas on my bathroom wall and i'm happy the total came to three. and who knows what will happen and maybe there will be more. if i can take what i know now about open hearts and risk and love all of my past reviews can be 8.4's or 9.2's using pitchfork's system and thanks for the wishes that did dishes and for the flowers and that book.

and most of all i believe i will find another album to love like i loved fallow and i wish the same for everyone.

love like winnipeg,

my favorite canucks elimination stories by kendra

1) cousins deli, 2002? they were playing minnesota. they were ahead 3-1. we were watching on a little black and white tv. they blew the lead. they lost. we all shook our heads everytime we heard the word gaborik for the rest of the summer

2) river avenue, 2004. i had an exam the next day. they were playing calgary. nasland scored with a few seconds to go to tie it and take it to overtime. i was in the porch looking in and calgary scored right into the overtime and it was devestating.

3) arlington street, 2009, sherri comments that the canucks always choke.

4) preston avenue, 2010. waiting for next year. xo

cinco de mayo: 2010

first game: boston v. philedelphia

2-1 boston, discussion of chara's longer stick. kendra thrilled at the gifts from the us - including cherry pepsi. rebecca and vanessa wearing nervoustime shirts. first power play of the game coming up, discussion "when can they put a lien on your vehicle?" kendra informs all that she knows nothing about that.

flashback to last year when we also blogged on this day, at the time 20 of the 23 blackhawks were single. who knows how many are now? last year was also gsps anniversary of attending nt, he isn't here tonight sadly.

just also realized that last year vancouver was also playing chicago and graham was going for chicago.

discussion about the european teams having more experience playing together......sherri quickly changes facebook last name to 'nervoustime' and suddenly deletes, kendra explains real reason she became a fan of 'molson canadian' and yes, that does not mean i've been drinking it.

team takes to the ice, we all put on our martin brodeur bracelets.

Happy Hockey Day!


After watching the emotional CBC ‘Hockey Day in Canada’ program (I love watching little kids meeting their hockey heroes), the games are on! This is a solo blog, but the nervoustime crew are together in spirit. Happy belated Birthday to our very own Sherri Berry!

First up: Montreal at Ottawa.

This should be a good game. BTW, we need to give a shout out to Martie Brodeur, Teppo Numminen and Keith Tkachuk. We love you all equally and in different ways (but Teppo is the best).

Ok, back to the game. Lots of back and forth. I feel like I’m watching tennis.

Fun fact: Jason Spezza has scored at least one goal in each of his last five games, tied for the longest active streak in the league.

18:15 The refs haven’t made a call all period. The pace is great.

Ottawa scores! 22:28 in the first period. Kovalev! Great pass from Puba. “He makes no mistake putting this into the back of the net”. I love announcer Bobby Cole. Kovalev’s 14th of the season!

23:40 Kovalev gets 2 minutes for ‘receiving’. The refs say it’s for ‘roughing’. Bullshit call. O’Byrne takes off to the dressing room to pout. 2 minutes for you!

Ottawa is 5-0 on the 4-4. I actually know what this means. Do you?

Karlsson is awesome.

Period 1 over. 1:0 Ottawa.

Mental note: we need to watch the 1987 Canada Cup with Gretzky, Messier & Lemieux. I’ve never seen the game in its entirety. Shame on me.

Period 2 begins.

Nearing the 5:00 minute mark and nothing much to report.

Oh, except douche wad Stephen Harper is at the game with his kid (poor kid). I guess he's got some time on his hands now that he's prorogued parliament.

Best moment so far: Announcer Guy Carbonneau posts a photo of himself as a 16 year old hockey dude circa 1972.

9:26 What about Fisher, eh?!

Montreal gets a penalty.

Ottawa scores on a power play goal! Spezza with the tip in 13:35! His 9th of the season. 2:0 Ottawa.

Anybody else know that Scott Oake’s kid is an illusionist? Darcy Oake is playing the Gas Station Theatre in Winnipeg soon – it’s like my worlds are colliding into an alternate universe of ILLUSION!

Canadiens are trying to recover, and there’s a penalty against Ottawa. Carkner 2:00.

15:30 Montreal scores! 2:1 now. Pouilot gets the toe of his stick on it. Great pass from Plakenek.

We've got ourselves a pretty damn good hockey game.

Period 2 over. Bring on the CBC hockey nostalgia clips.

Period 3 begins. Both teams are at full speed. Looks like a penalty coming up...yep, 2:00 Hamrlik for holding.

I get verklempt watching Sid Crosby's Timbits commercial. 'Hockey is in our driveways, it's in our dreams.'

16:02 Power play Ottawa! Excitement. Kovalev is a machine! Some awesome scoring chances, but Halak is proving his stuff today. Big saves.

11:55 It's really picked up. The announcers are really getting into it.

Montreal on the power play.

Montreal ties the game with 2:45 left in the 3rd! Gionta 2:45. We have a tie game, folks.


Spezza has been tripped! Shoulda been a penalty shot. They say if you don't get a chance to shoot the puck, then you should get a penalty shot. "We've seen penalty shots called for a lot less this year." 2:00 penalty to Montreal. 4 on 3 for Ottawa.

2:30 minutes left in OT. 2:2.

1 minute left in the penalty, 2 minutes left in OT.

PENALTY CALLED! Spezza sent to the bench for kicking the stick! Spezza is not happy.

Wowza. 3 on 3.

Fisher coming in...SCORES! 9 straight wins for Ottawa! Power goal!

3 stars: Halak, Elliott, Fisher.

Great game, great finish - those are my final thoughts on this one, folks! Holla to the nervoustime crew!

Saturday Double-header January 23, 2010

location: sherri's pad

present: sherri, becca, kendra, graham smith-peloquin

tardy: nesse (waiting for joe pug to start)

game #1: toronto at florida.

concensus is this game sucks and we're really just waiting for game #2 to start. why the hell does florida have a hockey team? in the words of don cherry: "if this game keeps going this way, we're gonna have to give the #1 star to the zamboni driver."

group discusses tv antennae - who else bought overpriced tv antennae in the 80s?

(cbc is coming in clearly at sherri's, btw)

sherri saw mr. benson in de luca's today. one side of the room talks about how mr. benson looked exactly like the gym teacher in beavis & butthead. high school gossip circa 1992.

awesome dip gets five awesome's out of five. discussion of the weather in january, flury's injury, graham's condition on new years day, waiting for game 2 to start.

GAME #1 IS OVER! Florida won 2-0 if anybody cares.

End of game from Montreal - 6-0 win against New York Rangers. Kendra receives call from ex-boyfriend who is at that game and wants to rub it in. little does he know, we are content waiting for Chicago at Vancouver to begin.

Game #2 - Chicago at Vancouver

8:56 the discussion about scott oake begins. sherri: "he used to live in linden woods, i lived on a farm nearby."

8:57 "are you on the single-for-a-year-challenge?" "NO!?!" "i do NOT need another challenge...unless it's a chocolate challenge...or a macaroni and cheese challenge"

8:59 Vanessa arrives! entry dilemma. manual door system enacted. "And I've brought a delicious treat with 3 kinds of butter: real butter; peanut butter; and butterscotch". Round of applause.

9:04 the room rises and we remove our hats to sing the national anthem with mark donnelly. Vanessa "i could totally hear you guys outside in the hall."

9:10 chicago power play. well, nothing came of that.

9:14 baumgartner, from manitoba, has come back up to the big league! welcome back, broseph!

9:16 nostalgic trip down memory lane over the way Polo Park shopping mall used to be. graham "i remember when you used to be able to smoke in the food court."

9:19 just pulled over by andrew ladd

vancouver score!!!! samuelsson

"duncan keith, where did he come from?"

sherri bouncing on a workout ball

graham watching the clock

both leaving

kendra mentions ray emery for the first time, 9:45

note we have a picture of igor ulanov on display.

"sequence, boas and more"

discussion of signs "etc"

thoughts of spring and the BDI. though it is hard to believe that it is the middle of january and there were puddles on the road.

discussion on louis riel day and family day.

nervoustime's first hockey twin...jerome iginla...who knew so many hockey players think that the blackberry is the greatest canadian invention...nervoustime choice was 5 pin bowling. second twin brendan morrow...tries to go back on that one...

10:21 jessie is teaching tom to drive on 18 to life on monday and there is a rumor going around the room that some of the kids from the jersey shore are at hifi tonight.

10:30 st bonifice is so far away! des meuron is even further!

10:32 second period over. score stands at 2-0.

10:43 kendra's departing words "i love nervoustime!"

10:45 we declare our love for wayne coyne.

10:49 vancouver's got this in the bag. kendra: "that's what i'm worried about"

10:52 vanessa "i love it: the world's largest sporting event, brought to you by McDonalds. Yeah. cause after i get my gold medal, i really want a Big Mac."

10:53 kendra "Jets Wives Carnival". And scene.

happy new year

late into the winter classic, boston and philedelphia, playing outside. 1-0 phil with 4:00 minutes left in the second. doing the quiz "do you remember 2009" written by mr. mike, kendra and sherri's grade 8 teacher.

present: sherri, kendra, nesse, rebecca. drinking coffee and/or kahlua.

report on the game: saw the first scrap in winter classic history (the Don disapproves, but admits Carcillo #13 brings 'the meat') between Carcillo and Thornton). drop kick murphy performed opening song (not flogging molly as earlier thought). weather conditions have been worsening and the wind has picked up. Philly is up 1:0. Second intermission and the whole gang is now here!

Kristen & Graham arrive (wearing no hats! it's -45!) Discussions ensue on last night's festivities. Happy New Years to all our nervoustime fans!
